Type 2 Diabetes - 6 Tips To Help Boost Your Metabolism


For those Type 2 diabetics who are battling a weight issue, losing weight is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. But in order to effectively lose that excess weight, you have to find ways to safely rev up your metabolism. Here are six tips to help you do just that in order to help promote the desired weight loss...

1. Don't skip breakfast. There's a good reason why this meal is officially called the "most important meal of the day". It gets your body to start burning fat early on and sets the tone for your metabolism for the remainder of the day.

2. Don't try to starve yourself. It might sound logical that the less food you take in throughout the day, the more fat your body would be forced to burn. But that is only a little true. Yes, in the very beginning your body will be forced to burn the stored fat due to a lack of food. But this forced burning will only last for a very, very short period of time. Then your body will quickly acclimate and turn to survival mode, where it will desperately hold onto the fat for use later on. What is your body then forced to burn in place of fat? Muscle!

3. Don't stuff yourself. Mealtime should not be a contest to see how much food you can pack in. In fact, instead of eating three large meals you should be breaking it up into three medium-sized meals with snacks in between. By distributing your food intake more evenly throughout your day, you are providing a more constant source of fuel for your body. This eliminates the highs and dips in your blood sugar as well.

4. Don't allow dehydration. It's a common scenario: most people don't drink enough water. The rule of thumb is to consume half of your body weight in water every day. While it might seem like a lot, it is actually what your body needs. Water helps break down and digest food, keeps your organs functioning properly and, most importantly, helps regulate your blood sugar levels.

5. Don't forget the cardio. Low-impact exercises are an excellent way to boost your metabolism without over-taxing your body. Cardio burns fat very efficiently and gives you the energy your body needs.

6. Don't forget the weights. Weight training is commonly associated with body building competitions. But weight training is another excellent way to burn fat, improve flexibility, give you more energy, and increase your metabolism.

Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. It need not slowly and inevitably get worse. You can take control of the disease by lowering your blood sugar and losing weight.
